Expectations here...

I print them on "parchment" paper and we sign with a quill pen and the document becomes our classroom constitution. Rules and procedures are how we do things (i.e. sharpen pencils, unpack in the...

I use a theme

for a couple of reasons. I like to coordinate the look of my room but that's the least of it. I think the theme creates a special sense of community. All year my kids are known as "my darling...

Bassett...

Like everything else, it takes lots of practice to make the choice time work. But the kids love it so they are motivated. I only have a few "rules." At most, 2 kids can read together (larger groups...

I ordered it last year

and didn't get very into reading it for some reason. I also didn't think it was appropriate for my second graders (and I've done reading workshop for the past 6 years). I preferred Growing Readers,...

No morning work for my second

graders. We had "choice read or write" each day for the first 10-20 minutes. They could read or write ANYTHING... challenging books, magazines, poetry, easy books or make cards, write in their...

I made notebooks for my second

graders this year. I used the binding machine and printed the front and back cover on cardstock. I printed primary lined paper for the filler. Sometimes we glued things on blank pages. I find that...

You don't have to "do" the book...

You can meet with and observe your small groups in a more open ended discussion. I often use "Thinkmarks" which are just sheets where kids jot down something they want to share about the reading. It...

I have used both

and don't like either. The holes in the notebook (binder) paper rip all the time. I tried having the circle reinforcerments to put around the ripped holes but that didn't work. The kids can't write...

I've changed from giving everyone a job

to having 2 assistants a day. They are named depending on my theme that year (castle... apprentices of the day, racing... Crew Chiefs, etc.). They do everything I need done that day. I never have to...
